Yesterday, you made an account on Teaching Tolerance and started to explore the website. If you didn't make an account, go ahead and do that now. You won't be disappointed!
Today, I'm asking everyone to share a resource from Teaching Tolerance that they are excited about. Here's one that I'm really interested in: Critical Practices for Anti-bias Education: Classroom Culture. This is a 1 hour, self-guided, professional development opportunity for teachers to think about what things are needed in a classroom to make you feel safe or like you belong. Then, after reflecting on that idea, teachers are guided to apply what they learn in their practice. Honestly, as I sit here in my classroom, I'm thinking a lot about how will set up this room so I feel like I belong and so that my students feel like they belong. This is our home away from home and it's going to need to feel like a comfortable space for us all.
I am also really excited about the classroom/school audit of surroundings. This encourages teachers to think in their room and their school so they can be part of greater change.
Your turn!! Post a link and briefly tell us why you're excited! Then we can all build and add to our learning plans on Teaching Tolerance.
About the blog
Facebook became my blog. A space where I shared the resources, experiences, and reflections with those around me. I hope that the same discussions can happen here and I hope you will share your reflections, experiences, and resources as you feel comfortable.
